History + Nostalgic References

I've been looking at photos online of various bloggers etc...and we've (when I say we, I mean most of the fashion set age group from their teens to mid/late twenties) is referencing 90s/grunge right now. The pictures are cute and all because it's an era that's already passed that we know is visually pleasing...but does anyone ever think how this will skew the historical referencing years down the line? Obviously it'll never be as authentic as the real 90s but will we want to remember the 2010s as the year that look like the 90s? It's kind of weird isn't it? Perhaps this is why we are all so fucking bored.

Although, while trying to find a picture for this posting, I came across a Sex and the City reference from I think 1st or 2nd season and actually, they look incredible!! This is the 90s I'm thinking of. Vogue 90s, Jil Sander. Even Miranda looks cool.
